The Doors

“The world we suggest should be of a new wild west. Strange and haunting.”Jim Morrison



“I’m interested in anything about revolt, disorder, chaos, especially activity that appears to have no meaning. It seems to me to be the road toward freedom.” – Jim Morrison.

Morrison’s first arrest was in Tallahassee, FL (his home state) in September of 1963. The charges: petty larceny, disturbing the peace, resisting arrest and public drunkenness at a football game. All charges were dropped.


“We’ve all shattered ourselves a long time ago. That was what early rock was about – an attempt to shatter 2,000 years of culture. Now we’re working on what happens after you’ve shattered.”Ray Manzarek


The Doors in Copenhagen, circa 1968.

“Each night we play it’s a matter of life and death. There’s something we have to get past every night. It’s a matter of how completely you can express yourself. Each song has its own psychic level that has to be reached.”Robby Krieger
